Digital Preservation Policy
How do we preserve Digital Content (websites, journals, published manuscripts, images, videos etc.)?
The journal published by Edorium Journals are in electronic format. The manuscripts and journals are published online without any print edition. We have formulated a policy for digital content preservation. The policy will be reviewed and adapted to available technologies at regular intervals.
1. How will we preserve the digital content in case of any mis-happening with the hardware or software?
All our electronic content (websites, journals, manuscripts etc.) is stored on three different servers. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy of the same live content is kept as a backup on two other servers. In case of failure of one server, any one of the other servers can be made online and all websites and journals will be live within less than 24-36 hours.
2. What happens to published manuscripts if a journal stops publishing?
With your support, we will continue to publish all our journals for a very long time. If due to some rare, unfortunate circumstances we are forced to stop publishing a journal, the manuscripts published in that journal will be perpetually kept online and accessible to the readers.
After the journal stops publishing, the journal domain, the website and all the content will be kept in their original form for a period of 10 years. After 10 years the content will be moved to another archive — Edorium Journals Archive — where it will be kept online and publicly accessible. This archive has been created by Edorium Journals to preserve all the digital content (especially published manuscripts) perpetually.
